Pros

- Leadership experience
- Unrivaled benefits
- Highly competitive pay
- Free medical
- Opportunity to travel and deploy
- Potential for some really exciting challenge such as...combat.

Cons

After an exciting intial tour, stand by for any number of mindless staff jobs. There is little room for creativity in many places and there is so much resistance and friction towards change. If you do a second tour, pick very VERY carefully. Even then it probably wont be very exciting or rewarding.

Advice to Management

Actually do human resources! Track skill sets and education of the total population and assign people based off of that. Allow more flexibility in assignments. At headquarters please fight the tendency to hire retired Majors, LtCols and Cols and allow them to sit in their cubicles collected a pension and GS-12 to 15 pay to surf facebook or build their own little fiefdom of other retired office chair warmers.

    Pros

    Travel, ease of promotion, management and leadership skills that are taught, college benifits.

    Cons

    incompetent senior personnel, extremely difficult on family, lot's of b.s.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions need to be seriously reconsidered, complete idiots that are horrible at their jobs are being put into high leadership positions which in return wrecks decent men and women's careers.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to teach, coach and mentor young men and women. Given alot of responsibilities and can find yoursle fin charge of operations at a very young age.

    Cons

    Expectation is that 10-12 hour days are the nromal work hours. Too many Colonels are just looking for that one star and do not provide leadership opportunities to their subordinates.

    Advice to Management

    Limit the amount of time spent providing visits to local politicians and celebrities. Set a bare minimum that a battalion or squadron can drop to personnel wise and identify what such a unit can and can not do (i.e. no longer able to support frags, IAs, TTs, FAPs...)
